Established in 1863, Windermere School is an independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged between 3 and 18 years of age. An IB World and Round Square School stunningly situated in the heart of England’s Lake District and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the School has three campuses: Elleray for children aged 3 to 11, Browhead for those aged 11 to 18, and Hodge Howe, an RYA (Royal Yachting Association) accredited Water Sports Centre on the shores of Lake Windermere. Elleray and Browhead are approximately one-and-a-half miles apart.
We require a Development Director to help the School establish its own Foundation and the formation of a board of trustees. Knowledge and/or experience of the legal requirements involved would be an advantage. This position is full-time and will include evening and weekend work.
The role of the Development Director is to create charitable, long-term income streams which will enable the School to continue to develop and advance its infrastructure, enabling it to compete effectively in the independent school market and provide students with first class facilities in which they learn.
Enjoyment of the role and the school is key to the success of the individual and the fundraising role.
